I am totally in love with the Buffalo Check pattern right now. I was so lucky that Mallory was on board with helping me paint my wall in the Buffalo check pattern. You read that right, I said paint the buffalo check onto my wall. With the use of ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape we were able to create this awesome accent wall in my front living room.

This room has gone through a series of changes and I’m basically in love with it now. It’s the first thing you see when you walk into my house and it’s always the first thing that catches visitors’ eyes. It’s my favorite!
Today I’m going to show you exactly how to create this super cute buffalo check accent wall for your own home using paint and tape!
- ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape Delicate Surfaces with Advanced Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector
- 4 different shades of paint (1 base color and 3 shades of the same color)
- paint rollers
- paint brush
- paint tray
- tray liner
- drop cloth
- ladder or step stool
Step 1: Paint the entire wall your base color.
Step 2: Measure and mark your wall. Using a level to make sure the lines are straight and even. Create a grid on your wall to create 6” squares.
Step 3: Follow along the pencil line tape the horizontal stripes going left to right.
Step 4: Paint the taped off horizontal stripes with the light color, allow to dry and remove tape.
Step 5: Following the vertical pencil line, tape the vertical stripes from top to bottom.
Step 6: Paint the taped off vertical stripes with the medium color, allow to dry and remove tape.
Step 7: Tape off the center squares where the vertical and horizontal stripes intersect.
Step 8: Paint the center squares the darkest shade, allow to dry and remove tape.
If you remember this desk was painted mint green back in the day. Against the black and white Buffalo Check pattern we did on the wall, the mint did not stand out enough so we decided to paint the desk hot pink and I love it so much more!
I am totally in love with my new accent wall and I’m finally loving how this area has come together in my home!
